The following is a list of some of the features that come standard with WordPress, however there are literally hundreds of plugins that extend what WordPress does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the WordPress code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free meaning not only price but also the freedom to have complete control over it. WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress
is both free and priceless
at the same time.
